Interior Minister Amit Shah on an agreement with the factions of the National Democratic Front of Bodoland: 1550 cadres and 130 weapons will appear on 30 January. As Minister of the Interior, I would like to assure all representatives that all promises will be kept over time. pic.twitter.com/PNDGYFdyYZ Interior Minister Amit Shah said the agreement will mark the future of Assam and the northeastern region. The Minister of the Interior added that this agreement was an extension of the 2003 agreement, as it was aimed at finding a lasting solution to the Bodo issue, and reaffirmed the territorial integrity of Assam. More than 1,615 cadres from different factions of the NDFB surrendered their weapons and joined the mainstream within two days of signing the agreement. Bodoland (including Boroland), officially the Bodoland Territorial Region, is an autonomous region of Lower Assam, in northeastern India. It consists of four districts on the north bank of the Brahmaputra River, in the foothills of Bhutan and Arunachal Pradesh. It is managed by an elected body, known as the Bodoland Territorial Council and concluded as part of a peace agreement signed in February 2003, and its autonomy was renewed by an agreement signed in January 2020.

The area covers more than 8,000 square kilometres and is mainly inhabited by the Bodo and other indigenous communities in Assam.

This agreement will ensure a golden future for Assam and the Bodo people,” shah said, adding that the agreement would meet political and economic requirements in addition to protecting Bodo`s language and culture. On this occasion, Shri Shah described this important opportunity as a vanguard of a golden future for Assam and a direct consequence of Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi`s policy of focusing on the development of the northeastern region. The realization of this vision is also reflected in the Bru Reang agreement signed on 16 January 2020 to end the humanitarian crisis in Meghalaya and Tripura, the recent handover of 644 armed cadres to Assam and the handover of 88 armed NLFT cadres to Tripura to lead them to today`s dominant agreement.
